If I can be of any help in providing copies of documents, do tell me by private message. If sosyalmedia want to get in touch with me the same way, then they are welcome. I will give them and you copies of what I have. Phorm have a record of threatening people and organisations with lawyers. I have a good file of material to provide evidence to back up the criticisms that people have made about Phorm. I also have full copies of their "smear" web sites, StopPhoulPlay and Uninphormed.com - where Phorm or their "friends" smeared and libelled their critics and had to withdraw their own claims. They smeared the BBC and Downing St and also Dr Richard Clayton, and eventually they had to take down the claims. I have the original web pages and the amended ones. None of these pages are online any more. Phorm got TERRIBLE press coverage because of those websites that they set up. One large UK paper, The Daily Telegraph, stopped supporting Phorm because of StopPhoulPlay. Phorm chief labels critics 'serial agitators' - Telegraph Phorm boss blogs from a dark, dark place • The Register Phorm also threatened Which Computer magazine with legal action and made them take down a web copy of a press article. You can find that article on Wikileaks. Search results for "Phorm" - WikiLeaks Phorm have also made statements that UK government departments (UK Home Office and DBERR) and the EU have said that Phorm's technology is legally compliant. Phorm are not telling the truth here. I have the documents where those UK government organisations DENY Phorm's claims. Phorm have said the EU Commission legal action against the UK was "nothing to do with Phorm". I have documents from the EU that prove that it WAS to do with Phorm and the EU said so publicly and mentioned Phorm specifically in their press releases and public statements. These are evidence of untruthful statements by Phorm that can be proved to be untrue. This was exactly our experience in the UK. What we have learned is that Phorm do NOT want to go into a courtroom and be examined by a lawyer under oath. They do not want to have to answer questions on all these things in a witness box. We have had cases where individuals were threatened because of what they had blogged about Phorm, but Phorm did not follow through the threats with action because Phorm do NOT want to go to court. There has not been a single court case in UK or any other country. If Phorm were to go to court, they would have to stand in a witness box and answer a question about whether TTNET customers are asked for consent before their communications are intercepted. They would have to give a truthful answer. We know that the interception of communications is done without consent. The consent is only asked for in respect of the serving of targeted adverts ("relevant content"). Phorm have never given a truthful answer to that question. They would have to answer it in court. They would also have to account for every single statement they have made that has subsequently been proved to be untrue. They would also have to explain the false or incomplete statements they have made to the UK Stock Exchange since 2004 onwards where they have repeatedly concealed Kent Ertugrul's directorship of the bankrupted company Hamburger Halt and only corrected the omission when I told the Stock Exchange about it earlier last month. Stand firm and fight hard. Tell Phorm to go away. No one needs to tell lies about Phorm. The truth about their activities in several countries over the last 8 or 9 years is damaging enough. If I can be of help - get in touch please. Good luck.Yes you are correct, I have checked our mail box if we have recieved a legal warning as they did but as for now we didn't. Sosyalmedya.co has recieved a legal warning from Phorm Turkey's lawyers as stated in twitter messages. They will release the details this evening.
-How is the Phorm Service designed to not collect PII?
Phorm takes several steps in designing the Phorm Service to not collect any PII. For example, Phorm Service:
Does not collect any information on secure (HTTPS) pages
Ignores words or phrases containing the "@" symbol to ensure that we do not collect email addresses.
Ignores numbers longer than three digits, to prevent the collection of credit card numbers, phone numbers, social security numbers, or other numbers-based PII.
Does not store IP addresses.
If any PII were collected, Phorm would be legally obliged to use any information in line with the applicable laws concerning protection of such information.
Phorm is committed to complying with both legal and regulatory obligations and industry best practice - now and in the future - and is therefore happy to consider any privacy suggestions on improving the Phorm Service
